Dearest Bob. A truely kind and generous man. I will always cherish the time I shared with you and your beautiful family. You cared for me like a daughter making sure I was safe and happy. Your generosity extended later to my own children, spoiling them during their first visit to the USA, with special treats and pumpkin carving at Halloween. You will be forever in our hearts.
What a wonderful man he was. His smile was never far and his sense of humor reflected his personality. Dina and family please know I am thinking of you
Always a smile and welcome conversations at family gatherings. Bob always knew what was going on and was interested in our well being and happiness. He is a person to aspire to be like in every way .

Our sincere condolences to your family. We have such fond memories of our time together in The Netherlands and visits in Atlanta and Amelia! You will be missed.
Much love and sincere condolences from all the Campbell family. Bob was a great guy and a character, he always had a joke or an insight. Several siblings and I did a lot of baby sitting for the Rosses over the years. Bob would always drive me home, give me a $20 bill and ask if the kids survived or if the house burned down. He was a great guy. I know Bob and Dina both have been so kind and generous with my family over the years. I’m sure you guys are hurting right now. But know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I was so sad to hear of Bob’s passing. Talking to him was a highlight of so many events over the years. You could always depend on him to say something funny and true. Sending love to all of the Ross family and especially Dina. He lives on in so many wonderful memories; all of us Campbells were big fans and remember him fondly. He’ll be sorely missed. ❤️
I had the pleasure of meeting Bob through Dina . I’ve known them for several years and I am saddened by Bob’s passing . Bob was always cheerful and kind I will miss his welcoming disposition when I visit Dina . Words will never be enough yet I will always remember this sweet family and the legacy he left behind .

Memories too many to count over the past 41 years that I have been fortunate to call Bob and Dina dear friends -- and family! From our days before children rushing to PW's and Rumors for fun filled after work happy hours with friends, to all the years of "family" vacations in Myrtle Beach. I will continue to carry on Uncle Bob's tradition of homemade animal shaped pancakes with my grandchildren, dressing up in silly Mr. Potato Head mustaches, taking walks on the beach to find seashells. Who else would have "Moony" the horse in their back yard for the kids to learn to ride --! Big snows always meant sled rides in front of the house -- with Bob leading the pack. When Dina and Bob moved to London, they invited me to visit -- my very first trip overseas. What an experience! Remembering all the laughter and fun we've had over the years helps to keep the tears away. And, dear Dina, my friend -- we have our arms around you -- forever and ever! Rest in peace, dear Bob.
Dear Dina and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bob sounds like an interesting and kind man. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Sending you sympathy and love. Bob was a special person. I have so many wonderful memories from our time spent together in London and France. He will be missed.
